by Series B notes
THe Lady Lavery 100 pound note was the only 100 pound note at the time of Series B, and even a bit of Series C, so was it used activley during that time? DId banks actively issue them? Were they treated as only being worth face value? :? :? :?

Lavery £100 notes were current until the C Series £100 note was introduced.
You could order Lavery £100 notes through your bank until then.

However, £100 notes were seldom seen in circulation.
Even the C Series £100 were uncommon. That's why there is a high premium on an UNC C Series £100.
